GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Chris Pratt continues his press run for "Delivery Man," which usually contains a few questions about "Guardians of the Galaxy." While speaking with Mashable, Pratt discussed one of his favorite scenes in the Marvel film.

"In the first fifteen minutes of the movie, you see me in this place," said Pratt. "That's what we shot the very first day and to me, that was the best day. I could not believe the scope of the set that we were on and what was happening all around me, the costume I was wearing, the wind and the water and the rain -- it was really amazing. You'll know what I'm talking about when you see the movie."

Pratt also spoke with HitFix about keeping secrets and the surprise of the upcoming Marvel movie.

"I know what's in the box, I can't wait for the public to open it and I'm really hoping that they like it," said Pratt. "I have a feeling -- it's like you found this gift, you're like, 'Whoa! That's great!' And now I'm ready, but if you open it up and don't like it, I might kill myself."

Director James Gunn and Karen Gillan spoke with IAmRogue during the "Thor: The Dark World" red carpet, where the director and actress discussed their experience with the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far.

"It's been great. I have an enormous, enormous respect for these guys," Gunn told IAmRogue. "I really think Kevin Feige is a genius. I think that he balances out some of my weaknesses and at the same time allows me to be fully myself in creating a movie that people are going to be shocked when they see how unique it is."

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Ain't It Cool News spoke with Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb about the overall philosophy of Marvel Television and some specific teases for tonight's episode and beyond.

"I can tell you that, at least with episode 6, there is a mysterious killer out there and no one is safe. That’s as far as I can take it but it is rather devastating if you are invested in the show," Loeb told AICN. "There are some very exciting folk from the Marvel Universe proper coming in. I think folk out there already know that Agent Blake from the ‘Item 47’ short is coming in and that will be followed up by us making a visit to a S.H.I.E.L.D. facility where there will be a few familiar faces and that Agent Sitwell will be coming in."

Meanwhile, ComicBook.com has posted a rumor that "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will connect to next year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," reportedly teasing and setting up the status of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the movie. Time will tell if the rumor comes to fruition.
